SummerSlam 2012 might be on its way to having an epic main event.
As with all things, until it is announced by the WWE, things are always subject to change, but according to Eric Gargiulo of CamelClutchBlog.com, "(Lesnar's) first big match will take place at SummerSlam 2012 in August."
Gargiulo goes on to say "Dave Meltzer reports on the F4WOnline.com podcast that the current plan is to add Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H to SummerSlam 2012."
As long as the WWE stays on track here, this would be a great main event for SummerSlam. This leaves an appropriate amount of time for a sufficient buildup that would not be too long or too short.
The only other time that these two men were involved in a match together was as a part of a triple-threat match with The Rock that The Rock won.
The promo between the two on Monday night revealed that these men are capable of keeping a heated feud through the summer and performing when SummerSlam is finally here. This is about as good as it can get early on for Lesnar, as Triple H will put up a valiant effort in hopes of bringing down WWE's new big bully.
John Cena put up a good fight, and ultimately won, but did not do much throughout the fight. WWE will not have Triple H get beat for 25 minutes and pull off a win in the end. Triple H is going to hold his own in this match, and it should be a great match if it happens.
The debate of who will win this match is going to be out of control, because there are so many elements to it.
Lesnar is clearly going to help propel stars in the WWE over his one year here. Triple H, however, does not need any boost to his celebrity.
If Lesnar beats Triple H, then Lesnar would be built up and perhaps taken more seriously after his loss to Cena. This angle would create more fear in WWE superstars, and the next opponent might be the one who receives the boost from beating Lesnar.
On the other hand, Triple H has already taken one for the organization and lost to The Undertaker. Would he really lose again in his next event?
Remember, in Triple H's promos for WrestleMania, he began by saying that he was interested in what was best for the WWE at this point in his career.
A loss to elevate Lesnar and then to elevate other, younger superstars might be the best for the WWE in this scenario.
